Since it's National Scrapbooking Day, I wanted to post one of my favorite layouts. Again it's a borrowed design. It looks time-consuming, but believe me, the part that will take the longest is deciding which photos to use!
I opted to scrap the boys' first Superbowl Sunday! I really kept with the borrowed design, mixing color accents with black and white photos. I threw in two color photos to to emphasize the event.
I loved how I was able to use scrapping scraps to create the circles and the straight accent on the top. A simple circle template. I then found the Superbowl logo and a football graphic from the computer and printed them on photo paper as well.
I printed the photos and cut them out, keeping a (relatively) uniform white border around each. I then glue dotted these onto strips of black cardstock, creating a "film-strip" effect.
For the journaling, I just started typing away on the computer, used double-spacing and a 16 point hand-lettering font. I then cut the narrative into strips and started piecing it together in the space available.
